26 Hungerford Street, Hartford, Connecticut:

26 Hungerford Street, Hartford, Connecticut: A stone’s throw from the Connecticut State Capitol is a street named for one of Hartford’s founders, Thomas Hungerford. Some accounts claim that Hungerford was a mariner from Hungerford, Berkshire, England, who sailed across Long Island Sound and up through the Connecticut River as early as 1628. He owned a triangular plot of farm land nearby to where Hungerford Street is today.

Hungerford Street was heavily developed between 1895 and 1900 – during the Queen Anne Revival period of American architecture. 26 Hungerford is seemingly the best preserved house on the block. Built in 1900, its Portland brownstone foundation is one of many features that makes the three-family house a true antique.
